Organic Farm in Israel

Volunteering
 
You can volunteer at an organic farm in Tamra/Israel, cultivating vegetables, olives and pomegranates, and making use of innovative sustainable techniques such as aquaponics, composting and permaculture.
 

Project Details

 
On this eco-farm in the north Israeli town of Tamra, they use innovative ways for sustainable agriculture and thus, offer a way to renounce environmentally harmful techniques and the use of pesticides; they also find a way to recycle waste. The operators of the farm aim to make people aware of the dangers of conventional agricultural methods and inform them of sustainable organic agriculture and livestock, in order to protect both nature and their country, as well as their health.
 
Agricultural cultivation on the organic farm is in accordance with the basic principles of permaculture, in which a permanently functioning, natural and sustainable balance is maintained. Environmentally friendly techniques are used.
 
An example of this is aqua and hydroponics, where water consumption is reduced and yet can be effectively utilised.
 
Olives, lemons, figs, oriental spices, pomegranates and more are grown on the farm. There are different types of chicken bred here.
 
Organic waste is efficiently processed on the eco-farm through the breeding of larvae of the black soldier fly. Organic wastes serve as food for the larvae of the black soldier fly. They plow through the organic waste and the decomposed waste is used as a particularly nutritious feed for the chickens and fish of the eco-farm. This saves money for the purchase of feed on the one hand, and at the same time, is a solution for the disposal of organic waste.
 
Organic waste is also dried in the sun and used as chicken feed. In addition, methods are developed to preserve fruits and vegetables from the organic farm, in order to make them available during off season.
 
The eco-farm has a partnership with a local supermarket. The supermarket supplies organic waste to the farm and in turn gets sustainable products at an affordable price. This co-operation and the awareness raised about the healthy foods that are grown under environmentally friendly conditions, benefit the consumer.
 
The eco-farm is not just for sustainable agricultural production, but also looks to fulfil a therapeutic purpose. Men and women with special needs work on the farm and have the opportunity to gather, in a natural and peaceful environment, new experiences, strengthen their self-awareness and improve their physical fitness.
 
Free tours, seminars and workshops are offered to support and cooperate with farmers in the region who want to implement the same goals.
 
Similarly, schools can visit the eco-farm and the students can learn practical lessons by experience about what alternative agriculture is, why it is necessary, how it is implemented and how successful it is.
